Host Credentials Oracle EM

When you’re going to maintain your backup through Oracle Enterprise manager, it will ask Host Credentials username and Password.

Most of the Oracle users asked What is this one Either Database username  or anything else?

I simply Replied This is Your server OS username and password.

Ok.But when i put the Server OS administrator username and password , It shows Validataion Error, why its happen and How to fix it?

If Windows Server,

Step 1: Go to Start —> Run

Step 2:type secpol.msc /s        –> Local Security Policy window appear.

Step 3: here

Left Side panel ->Local Policies -> User Rights Assignment  <– Enter

Right Side Panel -> Log on as a batch job –> here Double Click and Add Administrator User.

Now you can access your backup maintainence  through Oracle Enterprise Manager.

    • Go to your database server,

      secpol.msc / s

      local policies — user assignment– and rightside – log on as s batch job

      right click properties, and then add administrator group, click ok

    I did Logon as batch job for administrator. I also did other changes. All the same I get the error: Validation error.
    I noticed one thing. In EM the status of agent is unreachable. Can it cause my error? If yes how to fix it?
